Idioms are expressions that don't mean what they appear to mean.
For example, when you say 'it's raining cats and dogs',
you don't mean that cats and dogs are falling out of sky, but rather
that it's raining heavily. Idioms provide interesting insights into
languages and thought processes of their speakers.

you can provide recordings, please contact me.
You can send me audio files in any format. If you don't know how to make recordings
on a computer, you can send me recordings on audio cassette. Let me know if you want to
do this and I'll send you my snailmail address. Or you can call me on Skype (omniglot)
and I'll do the recording.
